Embracing Women's History Month
By Sharon Phillip

Today is the first day of Women’s History Month, and we have lots to celebrate. From our first women, Black and Asian Vice President, to a young Black scientist who helped to create a life-saving vaccine to combat Coronavirus. We have been breaking barriers across all social, political, and economic platforms.
Last year we celebrated 100 years of the Suffragette Movement and the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting our constitutional right to vote. And although we have made many strides, we still have a long way to go. As women, we are still fighting issues over equal pay for equal work, access to paid medical leave so we can take care of our families, and gender discrimination.
So let us never forget those who came before us, paving the way for a new generation. Embrace our power as women, and know that the sky is the limit. Ony we can shape our destiny, and nothing can stand in our way. Happy Women's History Month!
